Are You A Survivor Of Childhood Abuse?


Many adult child abuse survivors experience lifestyle disorders that, consequently prevent them from experiencing their life in a joyful and positive way.  The most pervasive trauma occurs when we are children. As a result of physical, emotional or spiritual abuse endured during the early, formative years of our lives, the result can be a myriad of healthy lifestyle obstacles! These obstacles can be extremely difficult to manage once we become adults.   
This can also cause us to suffer from self sabotage and self image distortions decades after the damage was inflicted. 

I am a survivor of child abuse and trauma. You can read my story Here.
